My predictions for yesterday's elections were pretty good.
I was surprised that the Dems were able to hold on to Murtha's old district, PA-12. This district was the only seat in the country that Kerry won and then went on to be carried by McCain, four years later. It seemed like a no brainer that with the passing of their longtime Congressman, Jack Murtha, the Republicans would get a chance at the seat and they still may very well, come the November general elections.
Mark Critz, who won this seat, in the Northern most section of the Appalachians, is a very Blue Dog but will presumably cooperate with Nancy a lot more than any Republican. This is at least one bright spot for the Dems to hang their hopes on.
